Aces Weekly 37 - Velicity Jones: The Godcutter Affair

Super spy Velicity Jones heads back to Aces Weekly!

Aces Weekly 37 - Velicity Jones: The Godcutter AffairAces Weekly Volume 37 begins today – and super spy Velicity Jones from Lee Robson, Bryan Coyle and Bolt-01 is back in action!

Last of the year, but first in class, Aces Weekly leaves 2018 with the same mix of content this digital anthology published by David Lloyd has always offered to readers who love comics for what they often do, as well as the many other things they can do, and can try…

Volume 37 features the return of the loving homage to the super-spy genre from Lee Robson (writer/co-creator of OGN Babble and contributor to numerous anthologies, including FutureQuake and Zarjaz) and Bryan Coyle (artist/co-creator of OGN Babble, creator of War Cars and contributor to various anthologies, including FutureQuake, Zarjaz and Omnivistascope),  starring Velicity Jones in a new action-packed serial, “The Godcutter Affair“.

Set in the 1960s, “The Godcutter Affair”, follows the events of “The Devil’s Breath” (as seen in Volume 29, which we raved about here). The international arms dealer Mael Riqueti has taken possession of the mythical weapon known as The Godcutter and is set to ascend to the head of the secret society known as The Brotherhood of The Blade – an organisation that counts some of the most powerful people on the planet amongst its ranks. Whoever possesses The Godcutter rules the world…

With the clock ticking, it falls to Britain’s greatest secret agent, Velicity Jones, to stop Riqueti from plunging the world into chaos. However, the Brotherhood has acolytes in intelligence agencies across the world, and they know all about Velicity’s mission…

I’ve had a sneak peek at the entire adventure lettered by Bolt-01 (commissioning editor of FutureQuake Press and letterer of countless comic projects), and needless to say it’s just as fun, action packed and enjoyable as the Velicity Jones first outing. There are, as before, plenty of twists and turns to the story – and it’s definitely got at least one jaw dropping cliffhanger!

Also in this volume of Aces Weekly, the odd couple of Riot and Phil, created by the super brains of Roberto Corroto and Ertito Montana, continue to make death their living in a world of gangsters and weird monsters called Sicarios
